The food was good. The service left a little to be desired. Our server was distracted or something. She left our salads sit on the bar and never brought them until we asked about them when she brought our meal. She had drowned the salad in dressing -- you could have drank it there was so much.

Nice little historic Italian restaurant on the main drag in Parkville, MO. It's really small, but that provides a cozy atmosphere. I had a calzone which was really good, as was my guest's eggplant parmisian. It's close to all the other shops in town, including some great little ice cream parlors.
